Nice and awesome!It would be nice to have more rol-playing stuff in Wowhead! It's a big community in WOW (and often forgotten).
Looks like the spambots have infiltrated wowhead.
These are awesome!
What is this some sort of ladder?
I love how he includes actual class attacks. Hearing Terry Crews and the others use those abilities was super cool! Matthew Mercer is an absolute gem for putting this together and sharing! I'd love to see more classes since our guild does some D&D rp battles for the S&Gs.
OMG! I'm having flashbacks from high school!
Please Blizzard:Hire Matt Mercer to make a new WOW Tabletop RPG.
Fun, I can't wait to see the development of the classes.
This is absolutely awesome!
Well, to translate any of the classes properly, with all abilities intact, you'd have to create a whole new write-up for each class. Being a "rogue" in Wow is very different than being one in D&D. For one, you can't turn invisible as a D&D rogue (not without a Ring of Invisibility, anyway). I tried to turn a Subtlety rogue into a Pathfinder class and that took a lot of work before I was satisfied with it, so I know.But I agree that there should be more tabletop RPG-elements in Wow. It has diverged quite a bit from its roots. But I can also respect those that disagree.
Um, there already is a WoW-themed version of D&D made by White Wolf, albeit based on 3.X - titled Warcraft RPG in its first edition and World of Warcraft RPG in its second edition. It's interesting to note that it featured Pandaren even though it was based on Vanilla. The Alliance and Horde sourcebooks were even written in-character, starring Brann Bronzebeard.It was pretty good for 3.X (not my favourite gaming system) and yes, I played it for years and even attempted a conversion to the 4E rules when those came out in 2008.My long-standing campaign suffered a bit from the 'curse of the meta-plot': having WoW itself evolve at the same time as your own story, with twists that I wouldn't have been able to predict. On the other hand the universe lends itself to creative exploration very well, better than - say - Middle Earth or other IP that was developed to tell a single story.TL, DR: the old WoW RPG rocked and I would definitely play an updated version.
Well! Time to roll up a void elf old spice gentleman.
Been a D&D player since 2000, DM for over 15 years... and that was just awesome fun to watch!I've used WoW inspiration, hints and even recurrent NPC's in every campaign i've done for the past 10 years :D
